    Older BIOS for the GX501?

    Throttlestop no longer works on this laptop with any BIOS version 309 or later.

    Please can someone advise on how I can downgrade my BIOS to 308 or earlier and where I can get the files for this?

    The Asus Driver page only shows 310 and 311.

    Since undervolting was disabled, my temps have gone from the 70s to the high 90s and I need to rectify it immediately.

    If anyone can help, that would be great.

    I have the exact same issue - my system got auto-updated to bios 313 (GX501GIAS313) and ThrottleStop (i. e. undervolting) won't work anymore - this is a known issue with most recent bioses.

    Would anyone have an older bios such as a GX501GI 307 bios so I can downgrade? I couldn't find any on the web and Asus removed all the former bioses from their website - really nice of them geez.

    This would be extremely useful as my cpu temps are now at 94-96c where they were before at 84c max.

    @dmayle Have you ever found one? Thanks

    You will have to find the BIOS file first. Then you can run the BIOS flash tool from the CMD prompt with admin privileges adding /nodate to the cmd line.

    Yes I know thanks. That's why I was asking if someone has the former bios (file) that they would be willing to share.
